Edmond de Rothschild AM’s Kevin Thozet joins New York Forum
Kevin Thozet, product specialist at Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management will speak on absolute returns in the fixed income universe when he takes part in the upcoming Funds Society Fund Selector Forum New York 2016, taking place 18 October at the Waldorf Astoria.
As fixed income investments have become increasingly subject to central bank activities and market volatility, it has become necessary to adopt a flexible approach to investing, both to protect assets as well as seize investment opportunities when they occurr, Thozet is set to argue. This flexibility applies equally to reconciling different investment horizons, as well as the ability to shift between defensive assets to those offering potential upside.
Thozet is a product specialist in the Asset Allocation & Soverign Debt team, which includes some 12 portfolio managers and analysts. He first joined in 2011 to set up the RFP team and assist the business development towards both French and international institutional clients, before becoming product specialist in 2015. Previously, he worked at AXA investment managers as a senior RFP manager with responsibility for international institutional clients. He holds a Masters degree in bilingual journalism and a Masters in management science.
